The chicken dish is super-quick if you buy a barbecued free-range chicken. If you have more time, barbecue or roast a quality bird yourself. Keep the skin on the chicken. It's the best bit!

Ingredients

1 iceberg lettuce heart, shredded

1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

juice of 1 lemon

sea salt and freshly ground pepper

1.6kg roast chicken, meat removed from the bones and sliced

Salsa

150g silken tofu

sea salt and freshly ground pepper

1 ripe avocado

100g fresh ricotta

juice of 1 lemon

sea salt and freshly ground pepper

Method

To make the salsa, mash all the ingredients in a bowl and then whisk until well incorporated. Set aside. Divide the lettuce among 4 plates. Combine the tomatoes, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and place on the lettuce. Place some chicken on top of each salad.

Serve the salsa on the side or in generous dollops on the chicken.
